With the intent of making Tennis in Australia the best it can be, we need your feedback!
Tennis Australia (TA) is working with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) to investigate the factors that contribute to, or inhibit progression of an athlete along the sporting pathway to success.
This is one of the first comprehensive investigations from an athlete perspective to identify the key breakthroughs, challenges, barriers and accelerants to the athlete development pathway. Therefore, we are seeking your input into a range of matters regarding what your experiences have been throughout your sporting journey.
TA will utilise these collective insights to shape the future of tennis in Australia – from grassroots and recreation, through to elite performance, with the aim to provide better, evidence-based programs and services at every level.
On behalf of TA and the AIS, we are inviting athletes to have their say in the ‘My Sporting Journey – A Tennis Participant and Athlete Questionnaire’.
You are eligible to complete this questionnaire if:
- You have or are currently competing in tennis, or have done so in the last 10 years; and
- You have or are competing at any level of organised tennis from club, state, national or international.
The questionnaire takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. The questionnaire is open for 3 weeks mid-September through to early October and all responses will be auto-saved as you go, so you can return to the questionnaire as many times as you need within that period to complete it.
Please ensure that when prompted within the questionnaire, you select the option of individual sport.
Please note that we recommend the questionnaire to be completed on an iPad, PC or Mac computer.
You have the option to include your name and personal details. Please be assured that all names and information provided will remain confidential and the data provided to TA is de-identified, so you can respond openly and honestly. If you do include your personal details, as an appreciation of your time, you will go into the draw to win a $500 EFTPOS voucher or one of three $100 EFTPOS vouchers, but your responses within the questionnaire will not be linked to your personal details.
Please note if you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian is required to print and complete the consent form contained in the questionnaire, and either post it or scan and email it back to the address or email address provided in the questionnaire.
If you have any questions about the questionnaire please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please assist TA in our endeavours to continue to strengthen our great sport for the future!
